It just doesn’t get any better!

Cut your commute time, enjoy your environment! Located across the Puget Sound from Seattle, and within easy reach of adjacent Pierce, Mason, and Jefferson Counties, Kitsap residents enjoy a peaceful, unhurried lifestyle in a suburban/rural environment, yet with easy access to one of the fastest growing metropolitan regions in the country.

The Visit Kitsap webpage calls Kitsap County “The natural side of Puget Sound,” and it’s true. Kitsap has more square miles of beach than any county in Washington State. Abundant city, county and state parks dot the landscape, and access to the mountainous Olympic Peninsula with its national parks and forests is just an hour away.

With an area of 566 square miles and a population under 300,000, Kitsap County offers abundant green space and is a true outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. From boating and hiking to kayaking and fishing, you’ll find breath-taking vistas, enticing trails and quiet waterways just waiting to be explored. Learn more at visitkitsap.com.

Rich in culture and history, Kitsap County offers a bounty of recreational activities, as well as shopping and dining opportunities in the many towns dotting the peninsula.

Want to explore the cosmopolitan big city side of the Pacific Northwest? Seattle lies just across the water! Take a fast ferry where a 30 minute ride lands you downtown in a heartbeat, or a traditional car ferry offering four different points of departure from the Kitsap Peninsula to King County.
